Distinguished visitors, and 
Members of the City Council: 

Four years ago, in this Council Chamber, we set 
out to build a stronger, a more responsive, a more 
dependable local government. 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL^CHICAGO 



April 19, 1951 



We undertook to prove that by lifting our own 
horizons, we could raise the reputation of this 
great city of ours. Cynics said it couldn't be done. 
Some called it a useless experiment — doomed to 
failure. It was maintained in some quarters that 
big city government could not be changed. 

But tonight, four years after we initiated the 
kind of government the people asked for, you and I, 
who have just taken the oath of office, have posi- 
tive reaffirmation of our belief that the confidence 
of the people, combined with some degree of ad- 
ministrative daring and resourcefulness, can be 
made to work many changes. In this instance, it 
made a fact of theory, and reality of an idea. 

A maiority of the voters have recently expressed 
approval of the policies and principles this ad- 
ministration stands for. 

We have been given a new order to carry on — to 
consolidate the gains that have been made, to ex- 
pand and extend those gains. 

The people voted for Chicago. They have given 
us the green light to build an even bigger and better 
city. 

I am deeply grateful to the people of my home 
town for the new opportunity they have given me 
to serve. I know that every one of you who sits in 
the City Council is equally appreciative of having 
been chosen to participate in what we must make 
a highly constructive period in our municipal his- 
tory. There can be no greater incentive to this 
ambition than the inspiration of the people's con- 
fidence. 

Tonight, we who are of the local government 
must surely be thinking chiefly of how we are to 
prove worthy of the new honors, the great respon- 
sibilities, which faith in our purposes has given us. 

Facing the future as we do, this seems the op- 
portune time to examine the principal factors which 
contributed to the success of the undertaking we 
jointly initiated back in 1947. The formula has 
proven itself, it should continue to serve us well 
as we move forward. 

First among those factors I would place the 
policy we put into effect of making partisan politics 
secondary to public service. 

I am quite sure that none of us have to fear 
we'll get to be too good at governing. We can 
never go too far in that direction. Human frailty, 
if not politics, won't let us. 

We all know that perfection is unattainable. But 
that is no reason for lowering our sights. If the 
goal is high enough, the level of the gains made 
will inevitably be within proximity of first-rate per- 
formance. And our sincerity, and our integrity, 
should cover any ordinary mistakes. 

There can be no doubt that the citizens of this 
community actively desire good government. It is 
more than merely a sentimental wish. It is an 
emphatic directive, twice expressed, in 1947 and 
again in 1951, compelling us to do not only those 
things which improve the physical plant, but to 
strive constantly to improve the tone of local gov- 
ernment. 

As it has been since 1947, my administration 
during the next four years will be dedicated to 
these objectives. 

The pattern of adherence to sound moral values 
in government has been well established. Its basis 
is efficiency, economy, integrity, impartiality — and 
the service of only one special interest — the gen- 
eral welfare. There must be no deviation from 
this standard. 



People who know the facts are aware that, along 
with improving the services rendered by govern- 
ment, we have been improving the facilities for 
giving service. Here, again, the pattern is well 
established. Standards have been set up for per- 
manency. As a result, the progress in making 
physical improvements during the next few years 
should be steadier and swifter than it has been 
before. 

This administration has been fortunate in having 
first rate planning. Actually, almost fifty percent 
of the day to day job we do is taken up with 
planning for the future. Every project we have 
initiated has been thoroughly studied for its use- 
fulness to the greatest number of people. 

Time does not permit full description of all the 
projects either blue-printed or actually under way 
to make Chicago the city of great modern public 
works that we want it to be. 

In outline, however, here are the projects we 
should be able to finish during the next four years: 

The Wacker Drive extension to Congress Street 
which has now been completed as far as Washing- 
ton Street. Total cost will be $12 million dollars. 

The Outer Drive extension from Foster Avenue 
to Hollywood Avenue. The city, the Chicago Park 
District, the County of Cook and the State of 
Illinois are sharing in the $5 million dollar cost of 
this improvement. 

The Congress Street superhighway and Congress 
Street bridge. Total cost — $80 million dollars. 

Approxirnately $32 million dollars has already 
been expended on these projects. The remaining 
$65 million dollars to be expended will be available 
from bond issue and motor fuel tax funds. 

Work on the construction of the West Side sub- 
way to Central Avenue has already been initiated 
and sufficient funds are available to carry this 
project forward during the present year. The total 
cost will be $25 million dollars. The financing will 
have to be provided through bond issue. 

Planned for construction during the next six 
years are street car and bus subways in Washing- 
ton Street and Jackson Boulevard. These would 
require the expenditure of $25 million dollars. Plans 
for financing these tunnels are being developed. 

Building of the West Side subway and of the 
Washington- Jackson tunnels is of the utmost im- 
portance, and it is the administration's intention to 
vigorously prosecute the completion of these 
projects. 

Construction of the Northwest Superhighway, to 
be completed within seven years, will cost a total 
of $128 million dollars. The city's share of the 
cost of this improvement, in which the County and 
the State are participating, will be available from 
bond funds and Motor Fuel Tax. 

We will continue to push development of the 
Southwest Side Superhighway which can be com- 
pleted during the next seven years. Total cost is 
estimated at $30 million dollars. 

The South Outer Drive extension, providing 
grade separations from 47th street to 66th street, 
and to cost $5 million dollars, is planned for com- 
pletion within the next five to seven years, and is 
to be financed from motor fuel tax funds. 

The next four years will bring to virtual com- 
pletion our sewer construction program — the larg- 
est undertaking of its kind in the history of the 
city. For this $30 million dollars is available. 

The Department of Public Works plans the con- 
struction during the same period of new bridges at 
Van Buren street, Harrison street, and 95th street. 



April 19, 1951 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCII^-CHICAGO 



For these improvements, bond issues totalling $8 
million dollars should be submitted for public ap- 
proval. 

Among other improvements to be finished during 
the next four years are the following: 

Construction of eight new fire stations and two 
new police stations. Four of the fire stations will 
replace structures more than seventy years old and 
one of the new police buildings will also be a re- 
placement of an old unsanitary building. This 
would require a new bond issue of $2 million 
dollars. 

A bond issue of $8 million dollars for new street 
lighting to be installed during the next four years 
must also be submitted. This will provide ten 
thousand new street lights and will permit the re- 
habilitation of twenty percent of the old facilities 
while at the same time keeping up with require- 
ments of newly developed residential and business 
neighborhoods. 

The problem of garbage disposal is one of the 
most difficult we have to contend with. Exhaustive 
study of the situation has plainly indicated that 
the city must come eventually to the incineration 
method of disposal. It is, therefore, proposed that 
a bond issue of $2 million dollars be submitted to 
provide money to get the incineration program 
under way. 

One of the most important improvements we 
have initiated is the development of water filtration 
facilities to service the great concentration of pop- 
ulation on the North and West Sides of the City. 
This is an $85 million dollar project and will take 
six years to build. The financing of this plant will 
be through the issuance of water revenue bonds or 
certificates, payable from water revenue only. 

In this connection, and also in the operation of 
the water works of the city, it will be necessary 
that we immediately undertake a study of the 
rates in effect at the present, and what increases 
will be necessary to maintain the proper operation 
and maintenance of the water plant, and to provide 
the revenue necessary for the new bond issue to 
finance the filtration plant. At the same time, we 
must persist in our efforts to reduce the wastage 
and leakage of water. 

During the next four years we should expend 
approximately $25 million dollars in the recon- 
struction and re-surfacing of two hundred and fifty 
miles of the city's streets. Funds for this pro- 
gram are expected to be available from motor fuel 
taxes. 

Airport improvements in this, the air crossroads 
of the world, are a continuing need, both at Midway 
and O'Hare Field. The Department of Public 
Works and the airport consultant are fully alert 
to these requirements, and are engaged in develop- 
ing plans for financing the work to be done. 

During the next four years we will expend $1 
million five hundred thousand dollars for the con- 
struction of fifty new playgrounds. Funds are 
available from existing bond issues. 

We will also plant one hundred thousand new 
trees, and funds are available for this undertaking. 

Now at the stage of decision is the question of 
the use of Washington street and Randolph street 
as one-way streets. No matter in which way the 
flow of traffic may be directed for these streets, the 
principle consideration will be that they be fitted 
into a scheme which will mesh with plans for traffic 
control in the entire downtown area. The cost of 
this Randolph-Washington Street improvement, for 



which money will be available from current rev- 
enue, is estimated at $500 thousand dollars. 

I would like to direct the attention of the City 
Council at this time to the Chicago Board of Edu- 
cation's proposed $50 million dollar bond issue for 
new school construction during the next six to 
eight years. I intend personally to give this pro- 
gram full support and I recommend that the mem- 
bers of the Council lend to it the weight of their 
individual and collective influence. 

Of direct and of the most vital concern to all 
of us is the financing of the corporate fund of the 
City of Chicago. The public sometimes confuses 
this with bond issue expenditures, but of course 
the revenues from bond issues and motor fuel taxes 
are earmarked for specific purposes, and cannot be 
used for corporate, or, as it is sometimes called, 
the housekeeping budget account. Out of corporate 
funds is paid the cost of operating such protective 
services as police, fire, health and sanitation. These 
are the functions which you, as members of the 
City Council, and I, as Mayor, are most closely 
concerned with. 

The revenue to meet these appropriations and of 
the Corporate Fund come from property taxes and 
miscellaneous revenue such as, licenses, utility 
franchise taxes, permits and fees. 

The property tax was limited by the Legislature, 
back in 1946, to a fixed amount of $41 million dol- 
lars. It must be obvious to everyone in the City of 
Chicago and to the members of the Legislature that 
the operation of the City Goverment cannot be 
limited to a figure that was set in 1946. 

The Legislature has recognized the need of other 
governmental agencies, such as the School Board, 
Sanitary District, and County of Cook, by removing 
pegged levies and establishing rates enabling them 
to meet their obligations. All we have ever asked 
of the Legislature is the same consideration other 
local taxing bodies have had. 

My personal conviction is that the taxpayers of 
this city and county already pay enough taxes to 
make the wheels of government go around. Distri- 
bution of the tax dollar is inequitable as far as the 
city of Chicago corporate fund is concerned. 

I have said repeatedly that too much of the tax 
dollar goes to Washington and Springfield. Not 
enough of it stays home, or comes back where the 
revenues are produced. 

It is my intention to go to Springfield next week 
to meet with the Governor and the members of the 
General Assembly to work out a just and sound 
solution of this very pressing financial problem. 

We will advise the Legislature of the fact that 
during the last four years, appropriations for cor- 
porate purposes, despite greatly increased costs of 
operation, have been increased only four percent. 
We will point out the need for better salaries for 
police, fire and other departmental employees, and 
for other purposes. 

In the police department alone, we have imme- 
diate need for between five and six hundred addi- 
tional men. 

A number of plans for corporate fund relief have 
been suggested. 

In addition to the present set up of revenues 
now obtained from property taxes and miscellane- 
ous sources, the corporate fund must have a mini- 
mum of $15 million dollars more from whatever 
plan of relief may be adopted. 

In order not to prejudice any action taken by the 
Legislature, I will refrain at this time from further 
discussion of any of the proposed remedial meas-

ures. The question is certainly not a partisan 
matter, and should not be considered as such either 
at this end, or at Springfield. 

Assuming that the merit of our proposals will 
be manifest to the General Assembly, and that the 
result will be removal of those obstacles to our 
progress of which I have spoken, it seems to me 
our position is altogether an enviable one. 

Every department of local government has been 
improved, and our experience shows the way to 
further improvements. The door is open to us for 
new accomplishment in many directions. 

Much has been done, for instance, to improve the 
Chicago police department. But we have no in- 
tention of resting on our oars. We are working to 
make the department the best in the country — a 
completely professional organization fully equipped 
to do its job. The department personnel ranks with 
the country's best crime-fighting forces. It will 
soon have the full benefits of additional training 
methods and other improvements it has long 
needed. 

In the meantime, there will be no compromise in 
our continuing fight on organized crime, or on 
crime in all its categories. 

We did not win an election to abdicate our 
powers to any invisible government. 

We will attack commercialized crime and vice 
from every side. Vice and crime as a business has 
no place in Chicago. Every resource at our com- 
mand will be used to stamp it out, and I know the 
City Council will lend every assistance to this 
campaign. 

No big city in the country has already done more 
to break up syndicated gambling. We have never 
relaxed our drive to dry up this source of organ- 
ized crime's revenues. 

The unprecedented spread of the traffic in nar- 
cotics, a postwar development peculiar to all big 
cities, presents a problem that has had, and must 
continue to have, concentrated attention. The great 
gravity of this illicit commerce lies in its menace 
to the youth of our city. In this connection, I 
would like to recommend to county and state au- 
thorities consideration of the feasibility of setting 
aside at least part of some existing hospital for the 
treatment of drug addicts in the metropolitan area. 
Incidentally, I would like to point out that the 
drug traffic, along with the perennial problem of 
gambling, is more than a police problem. It is a 
serious social question. Society itself, it seems to 
me, must in the end provide the really effective 
answer to social problems. And that is another 
reason why this administration has unfailingly 
sought to enlist citizen-interest in the functions of 
the local government. Important strides have been 
made in this direction, and the result has been 
tremendous stimulation to better performance all 
along the line. 

Our housing and redevelopment-slum clearance 
program, started in 1947, has made considerable 
progress. Sixty-five percent of the units in the $28 
million dollar relocation program have been com- 
pleted and are now occupied. The balance will be 
finished this year. 

In the last year and one-half, the Chicago Land 
Clearance Commission has acquired three-fourths 
of the South Side property upon which the New 
York Life Insurance Company will build 1,400 
apartments, replacing some of the city's worst 
slums. 

The Chicago Dwellings Association program is 
also making progress in providing housing for 
middle-income group families. One of its projects, 



on the South Side, will be started early this sum- 
mer, and four additional sites are under council 
consideration. 

The Chicago Housing Authority program, which 
was approved by the City Council, is in work and 
involves slum clearance and housing for low-income 
group families. I am advised that at least a por- 
tion of this important program will be under con- 
truction in a few months. 

Slum clearance must continue to be one of our 
chief objectives. 

Our civil defense plans are said to be a model 
for the nation. No city has spent more time, and 
less money, or done more in this activity. 

The history of local transportation in the city 
of Chicago is well known to most of us, as it is to 
the car-riders. For years, the transit system was 
a political football. Largely as a result of this, 
the operating companies became bankrupt, both 
financially, and in the service and equipment they 
provided. 

Back in 1945, the city government, the state gov- 
ernment, and the Legislature decided to do some- 
thing about the situation. They created the Chicago 
Transit Authority, which took over operation of 
the surface and rapid transit lines in 1947. 

Under the law, this agency is separate and dis- 
tinct from the municipal government. Its autonomy 
should not mean, however, and actually it has not 
meant, that the city administration and city council 
should abandon their interest in the operation of 
local transportation, which is of such vital im- 
portance to the every day life of Chicagoans. 

There must be developed a more intimate rela- 
tionship between the city government, as the 
elected representatives of the people, and the CTA 
management. Whatever strengthening of the city 
government's facilities is necessary to perform this 
function, should be provided. I recommend to the 
City Council a re-examination of its local transpor- 
tation committee set-up, in order that improved 
liaison with CTA may be worked out. 

I have suggested to the chairman of the CTA 
board that there be made available to council mem- 
bers a quarterly report, prepared by transit engi- 
neering experts, outside experts, on the service and 
the entire operation. I am sure this will be helpful. 

Transportation services must be improved. I am 
confident this can be done. 

It has been a contribution of immeasurable value 
during the last four years that the City Council 
has been the most active and the most interested 
in many years. Most of you have been in the city 
service during the past four years, and many of 
you have given much longer periods of time to the 
representation of the people of your wards and to 
the city as a whole. 

I know you feel as I do, and as City Clerk 
Schreiber and City Treasurer Milota do, that a 
very grave responsibility goes with the leadership 
we have just formally accepted. 

Virtually everything that we do officially has its 
effect upon the business life of the community, and 
upon the prosperity of the people. Chicago is a 
"united nations" within itself. The harmony we 
have in human relationships, among people of 
many divergent backgrounds, as well as in man- 
agement-labor relations, is the envy of many other 
big cities. We must all work untiringly to main- 
tain this concord, and to do all we can to make 
Chicago attractive to new business and industry. 
New ventures in these fields spell greater employ- 
ment opportunities, more abundant lives for Chi- 
cagoans.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



We have come a long way together in a com- 
paratively short period of time. We have collabo- 
rated in making memorable municipal history. 
With the help of new members, and with the new 
members having our help, we can continue to 
achieve greatly for Chicago. 

We must strive, not only to excel past perform- 
ances in building better government, we must aim 
to establish standards that cannot readily be im- 
proved. We owe this both to our heritage, and to 
generations of Chicagoans who will come after us. 

For myself, I ask that you continue to give me 
freely of your understanding, your patience, and 
your experience. I pledge you the full return on 
my part of these essentials to mutual achievement 
for the public welfare. 

For my administration, I bespeak the continued 
support of all citizens and groups interested in 
promoting good government. Without the aid and 
approval of such representative, unofficial agencies, 
and without the great influence the metropolitan 
and community press is capable of wielding in 
shaping the destiny of the city, we could easily 
lose sight of the ideals we seek to serve. 

There is in the very atmosphere here tonight, it 
seems to me, the strong spirit of our determination 
to drive forward to the fulfillment of our objectives. 



Our most devout hope must surely be that what 
we are setting out to do can be done in an era of 
peace at home, and peace abroad. 

Our prayers must be for the strength and en- 
lightenment we must have to carry on. God will- 
ing, we will have these requisites to the successful 
completion of the mission that is ours. 



Benediction. 



Rev. Gerard C. Picard, Pastor of St.

mittee to which referred, within a period of sixty 
days, the chairman of the committee shall at the 
request of any alderman submit a report in writing 
to the Council at its next regular meeting, giving 
a brief summary of the proceedings had in said 
committee in relation to such referred matter and 
stating the reasons for the failure or inability of

the City Council annually a report showing the 
record of attendance of each alderman at such 
committee meetings. In compiling such attendance 
records the City Clerk shall not count any absence 
from a committee meeting which is due to the ab- 
sence of an alderman from the city under special

2, when the members are voting; 

3, when adjournment was the last preceding 
motion; and 

4, when it has been decided that the previous 
question shall be taken. 

Rule 24. A motion simply to adjourn shall not 
be subject to amendment or debate, but a motion 
to adjourn to a time certain shall be.

over one or more regular meetings, on a vote of a 
majority of all the aldermen authorized by law to 
be elected. 

Previous Question. 

Rule 26. When the previous question is moved 
on the main question, and seconded, it shall be put 
in this form: "Shall the main question now be 
put?" If such motion be carried, all further 
amendment and all further motions and debate 
shall be excluded, and the question put without 
delay, upon the pending amendments in proper or- 
der, and then upon the main question. 

Motions to Lay on the Table and to Take from the 
Table. 

Rule 27. A motion simply to lay a question on 
the table shall not be debatable; but a motion to 
lay on the table and publish, or with any other 
condition, shall be subject to amendment and de- 
bate. 

A motion to take any motion or other proposi- 
tion from the table may be proposed at the same 
meeting at which such motion or proposition was 
laid upon the table, provided two-thirds of the 
aldermen vote therefor. 

Rule 28. A motion to lay any particular motion 
or proposition on the table shall apply to that mo- 
tion or proposition only. An amendment to the 
main question or other pending question may be 
laid on the table and neither the main question nor 
such other pending question shall be affected 
thereby. 

Indefinite Postponement; Motion to Defer or Post- 
pone without Any Reference to Time. 

Rule 29. When consideration of a motion or 
other proposition is postponed indefinitely, it shall 
not be again taken up at the same meeting. 

A motion to postpone indefinitely shall not open 
the main question to debate. 

A motion to defer or postpone, without any ref- 
erence to time, shall not be construed as a motion 
to postpone indefinitely, but shall be considered to 
be of the same general nature, and to possess the 
same general attributes so far as applicable under 
these rules, as a motion to postpone definitely or 
to a time certain. 



Motion to Refer. 

Rule 30. A motion to refer to a standing com- 
mittee shall take precedence over a similar motion 
to refer to a special committee. 

Motion to Amend. 

Rule 31. A motion to amend an amendment 
shall be in order, but one to amend an amendment 
to an amendment shall not be entertained. 

Rule 32. An amendment modifying the inten- 
tion of a motion shall be in order; but an amend- 
ment relating to a different subject shall not be in 
order. 

On an amendment to "Strike out and insert", the 
paragraph to be amended shall first be read as it 
stands, then the words proposed to be stricken out, 
then those to be inserted, and finally the paragraph 
as it will stand if so amended shall be read. 

Rule 33. An amendment to the main question 
or other pending question may be referred to a 
committee and neither the main question nor such 
other pending question shall be affected thereby. 

Filling of Blanks. 

Rule 34. When a blank is to be filled, and differ- 
ent sums or times proposed, the question shall be 
taken first on the least sum or the longest time. 

Motion to Substitute. 

Rule 35. A substitute for any original proposi- 
tion under debate or for any pending amendment 
to such proposition may be entertained notwith- 
standing that at such time further amendment is 
admissible; and if accepted by the Council by vote 
shall entirely supersede such original proposition 
or amendment, as the case may be, and cut off all 
amendments appertaining thereto. 

Reconsideration. 

Rule 36. A vote or question may be reconsid- 
ered at any time during the same meeting, or at 
the first regular meeting held thereafter. A mo- 
tion for reconsideration, having been once made 
and decided in the negative, shall not be renewed, 
nor shall a motion to reconsider be reconsidered. 

Rule 37. A motion to reconsider must be made 
and seconded by members who voted on the pre- 
vailing side of the question to be reconsidered, 
unless otherwise provided by law; provided, how- 
ever, that where a motion has received a majority 
vote in the affirmative, but is declared lost solely 
on the ground that a greater number of affirmative 
votes is required by statute for the passage or 
adoption of such motion, then in such case a mo- 
tion to reconsider may be made and seconded only 
by those who voted in the affirmative on such ques- 
tion to be reconsidered. 

Resumption of Business after Adjournment. 

Rule 38. The Council shall at all regular meet- 
ings resume business at the same order on which 
it was engaged immediately preceding the last ad- 
journment, with the exceptions of orders Nos. 1, 2, 
3, 4 and 5 of Rule 3, which shall be called and 
disposed of before resuming business as herein 
provided.

Nays — Aldermen Carey, Cohen, Merriam, Muir, 
Bohling, Geisler, Peska, Jacobs, Becker, Immel, Fleck, 
Hoellen, Freeman — 13. 

Alderman Freeman thereupon submitted the fol- 
lowing "minority report," and moved to adopt: 

The City of Chicago lies at the crossroads of 
the opposing routes of greatness and deterioration. 
The action of the City Council, in cooperation with 
our Mayor, will determine to a very great extent 
which route we follow. We must find ways and 
means of financing the many city activities; we 
must strike hard at the problem of neighborhood 
deterioration; we must unsnarl the traffic prob- 
lem; we must do our part in providing a fair and 
equitable transportation system; we must meet 
any problems of overlapping and conflicting gov- 
ernmental jurisdiction ; we must begin to use the 
"I Will" spirit of earlier days to plan for a greater 
Chicago. All of these tasks require the cooperative 
efforts of men of good will if we are to succeed. 

As a member of the informal committee on com- 
mittees and rules, I participated in the formal 
sessions leading to the proposed organization of 
the City Council. However, for the following 
reasons I am unable to participate in this report: 

1. All major appointments of the committee 
were made in private caucuses to which I was 
not invited, and, therefore, I was, and am 
still, unable to determine the basis upon 
which chairmen, vice-chairmen and committee 
members were selected. 

2. In many instances men of talent and ability 
were not utilized to their fullest effectiveness, 
both in the selection of committee chairmen 
and vice-chairmen and committee members. 

3. Committee size is so unwieldy as to eliminate 
the effectiveness of deliberations. 

These are serious deficiencies in the most im- 
portant action this City Council will take. Chicago's 
problems are too difficult and complex to be kicked 
about in a partisan manner. For all these reasons 
I hereby recommend that the committee report be 
returned to the committee for further study, with 
a directive that no member of the City Council 
serve on more than four committees and that the 
members of all committees, except finance, be held 
to a maximum of twelve.

Whereas, On January 16, 1945, the City of Chi- 
cago, through its City Council, exercised the privi- 
lege of paying well-merited honor to General of the 
Army Douglas MacArthur for his heroic military 
service to his country in the dark days of the war 
with Japan and for his triumphal return to the 
Philippines; and 

Whereas, Subsequent to that date, General Mac- 
Arthur has further distinguished himself and 
brought great credit to our country by his admin- 
istration of the affairs of occupied Japan; and 

Whereas, General MacArthur has added to his 
military laurels by achieving great military suc- 
cesses as the Supreme Commander of the United 
Nations military forces in the Korean campaign; 
and 

Whereas, The people of the City of Chicago, 
through their Mayor and City Council, again have 
an opportunity to pay homage and express their 
gratitude to and admiration for General MacArthur 
by reason of his return to his native land as a 
great military hero ; and 

Whereas, The Mayor and the City Council of the 
City of Chicago welcome and prize the honor of 
being the instrument for the expression of these 
sentiments and heartily share them ; 

Be It Therefore Resolved, That the people of the 
City of Chicago and their Mayor and City Council 
do seek by these Resolutions to give formal state- 
ment to the sentiments of admiration for and grati- 
tude to General MacArthur which they entertain 
in common with the people of the United States; 
and 

Be It Further Resolved, That great appreciation 
is hereby expressed for the graciousness of Gen- 
eral MacArthur in consenting to be the City's 
guest; and 

Be It Further Resolved, Thdt the Mayor is au- 
thorized to designate and proclaim the day of Gen- 
eral MacArthurs' visit to Chicago as "MacArthur 
Day"; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That these Resolutions 
be spread upon the records of the City Council and 
a copy thereof, suitably engrossed, be presented to 
General Douglas MacArthur.

ner said proposed resolution was unanimously adopted.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIIx— CHICAGO 



April 20, 1951 



Committee consideration was dispensed with by 
unanimous consent, and on motion of Alderman Wag- 
ner said proposed, resolution was adopted. 

Said resolution reads as follows : 

Whereas, Chicago's unrivaled railroad, hotel, 
recreational, informational and convention facili- 
ties, its central location and other natural ad- 
vantages, results in Chicago being the ideal 
American city for the Republican and Democratic 
National Conventions, and again is the logical site 
for the 1952 National Conventions ; and 

Whereas, a distinguished Citizen's Committee, 
politically bi-partisan in character, with the follow- 
ing outstanding Chicagoans as officers: 

Mayor Martin H. Kennelly Philip R. Clarke, Jr. 
R. Douglas Stuart Treasurer 

Co-Chairmen Barnet Hodes 

Secretary 
Edward E. Brown 
Edward L. Ryerson 
George B. McKibbin 
James B. McCahey 

Vice-Chairmen 
has been organized to bring both National Con- 
ventions again to Chicago in 1952; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Daily News on April 11, 
1951, voicing the general sentiments of the people 
of Chicago editorially stated: 

"Leaders of both political parties are agreed 
that Chicago is the logical site for their 1952 
national conventions. The national committee- 
men will meet within the next few weeks to 
choose among the competing cities. Chicago 
should press its advantages vigorously. 

A major consideration in such decisions in the 
future will undoubtedy be television facilities. 
Chicago meets this requirement abundantly. 
The convention hall, hotels and transportation 
services constitute other outstanding reasons 
for preferring Chicago. 

Tradition also adds its voice. It v/as in Chi- 
cago that decisions were made in time of na- 
tional crises. Here the Republicans nominated 
Abraham Lincoln to preside over a fateful era 
and here Franklin Roosevelt was first chosen to 
lead the country through a period of stress 
hardly less momentous. 

The honor will not come without effort on the 
part of Chicago. Particularly, there are ex- 
penses to be met by the host city. Other aspi- 
rants are eager to outbid us, compensating with 
cash for the lack of natural advantages which 
Chicago enjoys. 

Mayor Kennelly has named a bipartisan com- 
mittee to carry the city's invitation to the party 
organizations and to marshal the necessary com- 
munity resources to make the events successful. 
We bespeak the heartiest support for this com- 
mittee in their efforts to make Chicago the site 
when an important historical event will be en- 
acted." ; 

and 

Whereas, the City Council of Chicago, repre- 
sentative of all Chicago, strongly endorses the ef- 
forts of the Citizen's Committee to Bring Republi- 
can and Democratic National Conventions to Chi- 
cago-1952, and commends their objective and 
wholeheartedly supports their aims; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the City of 
Chicago officially joins the Citizen's Committee in 
extending a wholehearted invitation to the National 
Committees of both parties, through their respec- 



tive sub-committees, to take action to assure Chi- 
cago's selection as the Convention City for 1952; 
and 

Be It Further Resolved, That the Mayor of the 
City of Chicago and the officials of the City of Chi- 
cago cooperate in every way possible to bring 
about this end result ; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That the commercial, 
manufacturing, professional, civic, labor and spir- 
itual groups of Chicago be urged to revitalize the 
traditional "I WILL" spirit of Chicago by support- 
ing in every way possible the laudable efforts of 
the Citizen's Committee to Bring the Republican 
and Democratic National Conventions to Chicago- 
1952, and 

Be It Further Resolved, That the Mayor and the 
City Clerk be and hereby are requested to send 
forthwith copies of this resolution to the Chair- 
men of the Republican and Democratic National 
Committees and the Chairmen of the site and ar- 
rangements committees of these organizations.

the Chicago City Council as a special committee, 
representative of the city as a whole, to participate 
in the reception for General MacArthur and his 
party. 

"I appoint President Pro Tem. Dorsey R. Crowe

General MacArthur's reception call for a demon- 
stration in two parts. The first will consist of a 
motorcade and parade during the afternoon, im-

Girl Scout Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, during the month of April the atten-

fare of our community and nation ; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Council of the Girl Scouts 
- — the second largest Council in America — main- 
tains 912 troops located in 106 neighborhoods 
throughout the city, encouraging wholesome activ- 
ities and high standards of conduct conducive to 
good citizenship ; and 

Whereas, since the Chicago Council's organiza- 
tion in 1920, more than 129,000 Chicago girls from 
7 through 17 years of age have benefitted them- 
selves and their community through their scouting 
training; and 

Whereas, the presently registered 20,000 and 
more Chicago Girl Scouts give each year nearly 
100,000 hours of service to welfare and other 
civic projects under the guidance of over 5,500 
adult volunteers;

girls will demonstrate the activities being taught 
by the youth-serving agencies throughout the year ;

Whereas, it is vitally important to the future 
welfare of Chicago, as well as the nation and the 
world, that each and every one of us, individually 
and collectively, take time out from daily tasks to 
analyze the program of these youth-serving agen- 
cies for today's boys and girls, who will be tomor- 
row's leaders, and to do whatever we can truly to 
"Help Youth Help Itself" ; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor

Be Kind to Animals Week. 

Whereas, as part of their annual observances, 
emphasizing kindness to animals and all living 
things, the Anti-Cruelty Societies of the nation 
have set aside the week of May 6 to 12, 1951, as Be 
Kind to Animals Week; and 

Whereas, for their usefulness and service to man- 
kind, animals are entitled to humane care and pro- 
tection. Kind treatment to animals is a responsi- 
bility shared by all individuals and is akin to 
the responsibility they share toward their fellow 
human beings; and 

Whereas, for more than thirty years the Chicago 
Anti-Cruelty Society and associate groups through- 
out the nation have been successful in promoting 
this annual observance of kindness. 

Now, Therefore, as Mayor of the City of Chicago, 
I hereby proclaim the period from May 6, known as 
Humane Sunday, to May 12, 1951, as Be Kind to 
Animals Week in Chicago. I urge all citizens to 
cooperate in furthering efforts for the protection, 
care and kind treatment of animals and all living 
things. 

Dated this 3rd day of May, 1951.

Whereas, a large proportion of our population — 
as well as visitors from all parts of the world — are 
dependent upon the public food service industry for 
the nourishment, entertainment and comfort of 
themselves and their guests; and 

Whereas, the restaurants of Chicago have con- 
tributed greatly to our city's world-wide reputation 
for hospitality; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the week 
of May 7 to May 11, 1951, as National Restaurant 
Week in Chicago. 

Dated this 4th day of May, A. D. 1951.

AFL Union Industries Show Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, Chicago will be host this year to the 
sixth American Federation of Labor Union Indus- 
tries Show, which will be held at Soldier Field from 
May 18 through May 26 ; and 

Whereas, this show will emphasize the human ele- 
ment — cooperation between A. F. of L. workers and 
fair management — and will have many joint dis- 
plays sponsored by both union labor and manage- 
ment ; and 

Whereas, this show will present to the public 
hundreds of exhibits of high quality union-made-in- 
America products as well as numerous "live" 
demonstrations of the actual processes of produc- 
tion and of proficient union services ; and 

Whereas, in addition to the exhibits of union 
products and services, there will also be exhibits 
by various departments of government and defense 
as well as music and entertainment featuring big 
names in radio, television, motion pictures, the 
stage and opera ; and 

Whereas, the 500,000 members of the American 
Federation of Labor in the Chicago area will help 
Chicago welcome the thousands of visitors from all 
over the Mid-West who will attend this nine day 
show ; 



Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the period 
of May 18 through May 26, 1951, as AFL Union 
Industries Show Week in Chicago, and call to the 
attention of all citizens this presentation of fine 
labor-management relations, products and services

pellate Court reversed the ruling of the Superior 
Court which, on writ of certiorari, had quashed the 
findings and decision of the Civil Service Commis- 
sion in the above matter. Vernon B. Smith, plain- 
tiff, was tried and found guilty of violating sections

the Police Department, as follows: Section 3. Con- 
duct unbecoming a police officer or employee of the 
Police Department; Section 4. Immoral conduct;

The Appellate Court sustained the City's position 
holding: (1) that there was sufficient evidence to 
sustain the findings and decision of the Civil Serv- 
ice Commission that Smith was guilty of the 
charges made against him and (2) that there was 
no evidence to support his charge that he had been 
discriminated against. 

The plaintiff has until May 29, 1951 in which to

Sale of Bonds of City of Chicago to Bankers Trust 

Co. of N. Y. in Amount of $17,400,000.00 

Authorized. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report 
recommending that the City Council pass a proposed 
ordinance (submitted therewith) to authorize the sale 
of bonds of the City of Chicago in the amount of 
$17,400,000.00 to Bankers Trust Company of New 
York. 

On motion of Alderman Wagner the committee's 
recommendation was concurred in and said proposed 
ordinance was passed, by yeas and nays as follows : 

Yeas— Aldermen D'Arco, Harvey, Carey, Cohen, 
Merriam, Muir, Pacini, Nowakowski, Kucharski, Egan, 
Wagner, Micek, Sheridan, Murphy, Corcoran, Mc- 
Kiernan, Campbell, Ropa, Janousek, Bowler, Bieszczat, 
Sain, Petrone, Ronan, Rostenkowski, Geisler, Peska, 
Cilella, Lancaster, Cullerton, Jacobs, Becker, Immel, 
Bauler, Hoellen, Freeman, Keegan, Bremer — 38. 

Nays — Aldermen B o h 1 i n g , DuBois, Burmeister, 
Fleck— 4. 

Alderman Janousek moved to reconsider the fore- 
going vote. The motion was lost. (Alderman Bohling 
requested that the record show he voted "Aye" on 
the motion to reconsider.) 

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Ordinance 
Confirming sale of $17,400,000 Bonds of the City of 

Chicago. 

Whereas^ The ordinances authorizing two of the 
issues of bonds aggregating $14,000,000 for various 
public improvements hereinafter described pro- 
vided that such bonds bear interest at the rate 
of iy2% per annum, which was the prevailing rate 
of interest upon such bonds at the time the elec- 
tions were held where a majority of the electors 
voting upon the question approved such ordinances 
and the issue of bonds in the amount of $3,400,000 
for voting machines hereinafter described bear in- 
terest at the rate of not to exceed 3% per annum; 
and 

Whereas, Money market conditions throughout 
the United States have materially changed since 
such elections were held, interest rates having in- 
creased upon all types of securities even to the 
extent of affecting the value of billions of outstand- 
ing U. S. Government bonds and drastically de- 
creasing the market value of millions of bonds of 
municipalities that have been voted bearing a fixed 
rate of interest; and 

Whereas, The City Comptroller has given ex- 
tended publicity of the proposed sale of the three 
issues of bonds aggregating $17,400,000 herein- 
after described by advertisement in Chicago Jour- 
nal of Commerce, a newspaper having a general 
circulation in the City of Chicago, and in The Bond 
Buyer, a financial newspaper published in the City 
of New York, New York, such publication having 
been made at least ten days prior to the date of 
such sale, so as to determine the market value of 
such bonds, and four (4) bids for their purchase 
have been received, all of which offers to purchase 
said two issues of bonds bearing 11/2% interest are 
at less than the par value thereof, and the offers 
to purchase the issue of bonds bearing not to ex- 
ceed 3% interest are at not less than the par value 
thereof and accrued interest; and 

Whereas, In order that the various improve- 
ments contemplated to be made from the proceeds 



of said two issues of 11/2% bonds can be made, it is 
necessary that such bonds be sold at this time at 
the best price obtainable as determined by the 
business judgment and good faith of this City 
Council and the other issue of bonds being for 
buying voting machines should be sold in order 
to comply with the order of the Supreme Court of 
Illinois in the case of People v. City of Chicago en- 
tered March 24, 1949, 85 N. E. 2d 667 ; now, there- 
fore, 
Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Section 1. It is hereby found that advertise- 
ment for the sale of said three issues of bonds 
aggregating $17,400,000 was made in newspapers 
and otherwise so that notice of such sale was re- 
ceived by all banks, investment houses, persons and 
corporations in the country that ordinarily deal in 
bonds of the City of Chicago and bids for their 
purchase have been received, reflecting the value 
of such bonds in the money market of the country,

Progress Report on Construction of West Route of 
Comprehensive Superhighway System — 
Placed on File. 
The Committee on Finance submitted a report rec- 
ommending that the City Council Place on File a re- 
port of the O3mmissioner of Subways and Superhigh- 
ways advising as to the progress of construction of 
the West Route of the Comprehensive Superhighway 
System. 

On motion of Alderman Wagner the committee's 
recommendation was concurred in. 

Said report, signed by V. E. Gunlock, Commissioner 
of Subways and Superhighways, dated March 28, 1951, 
reads as follows: 

"In order that your Committee and the City 
Council may be advised as to the progress being 
made on the construction of the West Route 
Superhighway, I wish to report as follows : 

"The award of Contract Section 2525.1-2B of 
the West Route Superhighway to Leininger Con- 
struction Company providing for the construction 
of Halsted Street Bridge, was authorized by the 
City Council June 14, 1950, (C.J.p.6415). The 
specifications provide that the contract shall be 
completed by April 1, 1951. It is now apparent 
that this contract will not be completed within the 
specified time. 

"The contract provides that under certain con- 
ditions, the Commissioner of Subways and Super- 
highways may grant to the contractor an exten- 
sion of time occasioned by delays which are en- 
tirely beyond the contractor's control. 

"The contract also provides that if the contrac- 
tor does not meet the requirements as to time, 
progress and final completion of the work within 
the period specified, then the City may declare the 
contract forfeited. However, inasmuch as it ap- 
pears that the superhighway completion will not 
be delayed by permitting the contractor to finish 
this work, it is our opinion that the interests of 
the City will be best served by allowing the con- 
tractor, upon the consent of its surety, to continue 
and complete the contract, even though there be a 
technical default as to the time of completion." 



Report of Activities of Dept. of Subways and Superhighways Financed by MFT Allotments 

— Placed on File. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report recommending that the City Council Place on File a report 
from the Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways covering activities of his department which were 
financed by Motor Fuel Tax Fund Allotments. 

On motion of Alderman Wagner the committee's recommendation was concurred in. 

Said report, signed by V. E. Gunlock, Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways, dated March 15, 
1951, reads as follows: 

"There is submitted herewith a report covering activities of the Department during the months of No- 
vember and December, 1950, which were financed by the Motor Fuel Tax allotments. 

"These activities included surveys, design, preparation of contract plans and specifications, acquisition 
of right-of-way and construction for the West Route, Northwest Route and Wacker Drive ; and included 
studies, surveys and preliminary plans for other routes of the Comprehensive Superhighway System. 

"Two hundred eighty-six parcels of property required for the City's share of the right-of-way for the 
West Route Superhighway have been acquired. Five hundred twenty-two parcels of property required for 
the State's share of right-of-way for the West Route Superhighway and three parcels of property required 
for the State's share of right-of-way for the Northwest Route Superhighway have been acquired for the 
State of Illinois in accordance with the agreements signed March 25, 1946, as revised 12-26-50, and July 8, 
1947 respectively. The Department of Subways and Superhighways will be reimbursed in full for all costs in 
connection with right-of-way acquisition for the State of Illinois. Sixty-six parcels of property required 
for the City's share of right-of-way for the Northwest Route Superhighway; eleven parcels of property re- 
quired for the City's share of right-of-way for Wacker Drive Extension and eight pa:rcels of property re- 
quired for the City's share of right-of-way for the South Route have been acquired. 

"Attached hereto is a tabulation indicating the expenditures for the months of November and December, 
1950, and the total expenditures to December 31, 1950."

The Committee on Harbors, Wharves and Bridges

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Public Works 
be and he is hereby authorized and directed to issue

Transit Company and The Cleveland and Buffalo 
Steamship Company to maintain and use a tem- 
porary boat landing one hundred twenty (120) feet

nue on the south side of the main Chicago River 
for the year 1951 upon payment to the City of 
Chicago of a permit fee of three hundred and 
ninety-six dollars ($396.00) each in advance. This

fined dock and adjoining wharf to load and unload 
passengers to and from the upper and lower levels

permission from the Federal Government. By the 
issuance of this permit the City of Chicago does 
not warrant the docks, piers, quay wall and wharf 
to be safe for berthing or mooring vessels or load- 
ing or unloading cargo or for accepting or dis- 
charging passengers and does not assume responsi- 
bility as a wharfinger, but, on the contrary, every- 
thing undertaken or done by permittee pursuant 
to this permit shall be at permittee's own risk and 
permittee by acceptance of this permit waives and

power, subject to the conditions and limitations 
hereinafter contained to pass any law (local, 
special or general) providing a scheme or charter 
of local municipal government for the territory 
now or hereafter embraced within the limits of

part) in the municipal government of the city of 
Chicago, the powers now vested in the city, board 
of education, township, park and other local gov- 
ernments and authorities having jurisdiction con- 
fined to or within said territory, or any part 
thereof, and for the assumption by the city of 
Chicago of the debts and liabilities (in whole or

ities whose functions within its territory shall be 
vested in said city of Chicago; and may abolish 
all offices, the functions of which shall be other- 
wise provided for; and may provide for the an- 
nexation of territory to or disconnection of terri- 
tory from said city of Chicago by the consent of a 
majority of the legal voters (voting on the ques- 
tion at any election general, municipal or special) 
of the said city and of a majority of the voters of 
such territory, voting on the question at any elec- 
tion, general, municipal or special; and in case the 
General Assembly shall create municipal courts in 
the city of Chicago it may abolish the offices of 
Justices of the Peace, Police Magistrates and Con- 
stables in and for the territory within said city, 
and may limit the jurisdiction of Justices of the 
Peace in the territory of said county of Cook out- 
side of said city to that territory, and in such case 
the jurisdiction and practice of said municipal 
courts shall be such as the General Assembly shall 
prescribe; and the General Assembly may pass all 
laws which it may deem requisite to effectually 
provide a complete system of local municipal gov- 
ernment in and for the city of Chicago.

voters of said city voting on the question at any 
election, general, municipal or special ; and no local

construed to repeal, amend or affect section four 
(4) of Article XI of the Constitution of this State. 



Alderman Bohling next moved to concur in the 
committee's recommendation as to the proposed re- 
vision of Article IX. 

Alderman Merriam (seconded by Alderman Becker) 
moved to amend by striking out the words "and other 
public" occurring in the first sentence of the pro- 
posed Section 1; also by striking out the words "may 
be vested" occurring in the second sentence of the 
proposed Section 7 and by inserting in lieu thereof 
the words "are vested". 

The motion to amend was lost. (Aldermen Mer- 
riam, Geisler, Peska, Cilella, Jacobs, Becker and Free- 
man requested that the record show that they voted 
"yea" on the motion to amend.) 

The question thereupon being put on the motion 
to concur in the committee's recommendation, the mo- 
tion prevailed. 

The following is said proposed revision of Arti- 
cle IX: 

Proposed Revision of Article IX of the 
Constitution of Illinois. 

Section 1. The general assembly shall provide 
by general law for the levy and collection of taxes 
for state and other public purposes. All subjects 
of taxation may be classified according to their 
nature and kind for variation in the measure and 
form of taxation. Every tax shall be uniform 
as to the class upon which it is levied. Lands, 
exclusive of buildings and improvements thereon, 
may be taxed as a separate class. 

Section 2. The general assembly shall not levy 
or authorize the levy of a graduated income tax. 

Section 3. The state, municipal corporations 
and other political subdivisions of the state, their 
property and such property as is actually used ex- 
clusively for agricultural and horticultural socie- 
ties, for school, religious, cemetery and charitable 
purposes, may be exempted from taxation; but 
such exemption shall be only by general law. 

Section 4. The right of redemption from all 
sales and forfeitures of real estate for non-pay- 
ment of taxes shall exist in favor of owners and 
persons interested in such real estate. The general 
assembly shall provide by law for a reasonable 
period of redemption and for reasonable notice to 
be given to the owners or parties interested, by 
publication or otherwise, of the fact of the sale of 
• the property for such taxes or assessments, and 
when the time of redemption shall expire. 

Section 5. The general assembly shall have no 
power to release or discharge any municipal cor- 
poration or political subdivision of the state, or the 
inhabitants thereof, or the property therein, from 
their or its proportionate share of taxes to be 
levied for state purposes, nor shall commutation 
for such taxes be authorized in any form whatso- 
ever. 

Section 6. All taxes levied for state purposes 
shall be paid into the state treasury. 

Section 7. The general assembly may vest the 
corporate authorities of municipal corporations and 
other political subdivisions of the state with power 
to make local improvements by special assessment, 
or by special taxation on contiguous property, or 
otherwise. For all other public purposes, all mu- 
nicipal corporations and political subdivisions of 
the state may be vested with authority to levy and 



collect taxes subject to the restrictions of sections 
1 and 2 of this Article. 

Section 8. The general assembly shall not im- 
pose taxes upon municipal corporations, or the in- 
habitants or property thereof, for corporate pur- 
poses, but shall require the corporate authorities 
to levy taxes for the payment of debts incurred 
under authority of law. Private property shall not 
be liable to be taken or sold for payment of the 
debts of a municipal corporation or other political 
subdivision of the state. 

Section 9. No person who is in default, as col- 
lector or custodian of money or property belonging 
to the state or to any municipal corporation or 
polictical subdivision of the state shall be eligible 
to any office in or under the state. The fees, sal- 
ary or compensation of no public officer who is 
elected or appointed for a definite term of office, 
shall be increased or diminished during such term. 

Section 10. No municipal corporation or po- 
litical subdivision of the state possessing the power 
of taxation shall be allowed to issue full faith and 
credit bonds or evidence of indebtedness for any 
purpose, except to refund unpaid full faith and 
credit bonds and evidence of indebtedness, and ex- 
cept, for a time not exceeding two years, to pre- 
vent imminent danger to persons or property or 
to restore public property damaged or destroyed 
by casualty, without the consent of a majority of 
its electors voting on the question at any regular 
or special election. The tax levying authorities of 
the municipal corporation or political subdivision 
issuing such bonds or evidence of indebtedness 
shall before, or at the time of doing so, provide for 
the collection of a direct annual tax sufficient to 
pay the interest thereon as it falls due, and also 
to pay and discharge the principal thereof within 
thirty years from the date of issue.
